“Old fashioned swiss charm”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

We stayed here with the Ski Club of Great Britain,with a group of 12 for 6 nights.Very easy to reach from Geneva airport in two and a half hour by train, with the last hour the most scenic trainride you can imagine.The location of the Auberge is the best,short walk from the station in the middle of town near shops and skirentals,walking distance to the lifts.Opposite the hotel is a busy tearoom but the drinks and cakes in the Auberge are better.The room we stayed in was beautiful with a balcony overlooking the square.It was all clean and comfortable,the shower powerful and warm with nice smelling toiletries.
Flatscreen tv had too many channels and free wifi throughout the hotel is provided.Mornings started with an excellent breakfast with the most delicious breads and pastries.The cheese,ham and bunderfleish were local ,there were fresh fruits and joghurts and good juices.Eggs are cooked to perfection.
Evenings bring excellent dinners,soups,salads,steaks,fish,fondue's and raclette you name it.It was bought that morning locally and you can taste it.It can be hard to get a table in the restaurant and we noticed many people being turned away.The staff is friendly and helpful and even when extremely busy will do all they can to please you.
Will I be back?Absolutely

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter,only useful when a lot of snow has fallen and the snowremovers are in...

We just arrived back from a very pleasant stay at the Auberge de la Poste. We had a typical small wooden bedroom that is common in hotels of that period. It was very cosy and a real pleasure to fall asleep listening to the flow of the river.

The staff were most helpful and very friendly. Dining in the restaurant was most enjoyable, the food was excellent and the menus were in French/German/English, so making our selection was easy.

For the techies: The WIFI service in the rooms was excellent, among the best I've experienced in Switzerland.

We're definitely looking forward to our next visit.

Room Tip: This is a typical small Post Hotel, so expect the rooms to be small with limited space of luggage...

After taking the little mountain train from Aigle, which winds itself gently up the mountain to the delightful village of les Diablerets, you walk for a short distance from the station and you come upon the lovely Auberge de la Poste.
The accommodation was delightful, clean and fresh, all contained within a traditional Swiss chalet.
The restauarant, although not cheap (nothing is cheap in Switzerland), was very good, the food was of a high quality and the service was professional and efficient.
Breakfast was, once again, was very good, if one wanted any extra items, seemingly nothing was too much trouble.
Would not hesitate on returning again.

Central located this small hotel is perfect for an short stay; everything is tiny - the rooms - the bathroom, but you get a warm welcome and an excellent food in the restaurant.
Out of the season there is nothing spcial to do in Les Diablerets - even your TV Set has only 2 local channels.
Godd time to enjoy, read a book or go for a walk and get time to think; of course you have WiFi access but use this moment of peace and disconnect from the outside

Room Tip: Have a room with balcony -

We stayed at the Auberge de la Poste from 1/3 to 4/3/2010 inclusive. This was during a ski trip to Les Diablerets. The accommodation was superb, friendly and the food good. The restaurant is equally good. This was my second time staying at the Auberge de la Poste. To quote Arnold Schwarzenegger "I'll be back".

We stayed here for one night with three small children. We had been warned that it may be a bit posh with the kids as the restaurant is one of the best in the village but the staff were so welcoming. We took 2 rooms as the family room was advertised as only taking one extra child's bed. Our rooms were so close to each other that it was like being at home. There were toys on the landing, my daughter took several teddies to bed. They provided a cot for the baby as well as a changing station and even a little baby bath as the rooms only have showers. The restaurant has childrens menus and high chairs. Breakfast was great. The rooms are small but this is a sweet traditional chalet so just what we'd expected. I imagine in winter it is so cozy! The rooms were spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated, and there was a choice of pillows. Would love to stay there again.

Les Diablerets is a compact mountain village. As a gateway to ski resorts, there are plenty of hotels. But most of them are modern, concrete buildings.
This one, by contrast, is build inside a traditional wooden house.

Rooms are wide (we occupied two of them), some of them enough for a family of four.
We loved all the room and furniture (except bathroom) is made with wood.
Room is spotless. Bed-matress is comfortable.
Bathroom is small, but well maintained. Amenities are ok.
I had a good sleep, without noise problems. (Les Diablerets it's a quiet place).

Nice pluses:
-free wi-fi (with a code). Connexion was consistent enough for a Skype call.
-On the 2nd floor, there is a kids corner with toys.

We had dinner and enjoyed a lot the traditional fondue (well done, in our opinion). Kids menu had some simple dishes made with quality products (i. e. nuggets made of real chicken)
Breakfast --included in our rate and, I think, in all rates-- was not very sophisticate, but assortment was ok.

Staff was kind and efficient. Rate was reasonable for our rooms and for Switzerland.

In brief, nothing wrong with this hotel. We enjoyed our short stay. Nice alternative to a more 'concrete-built' hotel, much in the vein of the traditional houses in the city.
We recommend it and we would return in case we repeat destination.
